No, he doesn't get it and he never will.
Not until one of his kids or someone else close to him starts indulging and he's required to re-evaluate his stance. That or shun his own flesh and blood.
Good luck, Marshall Dillon. You're gonna need it.

food is a drug! Isn't the basic definition of a drug, something we take to make us feel better? Food used to be that which made it possible for us to get up, go to work, come home and do what needed to be done around the house. So, to answer you, food is a drug, but the last time I went out and ate far too much more than i should have, I could still drive well. I posed no risk to the general society that surrounded me. my brains and lungs were at no risk for impairment. I can grow food in my backyard LEGALLY, so no comparison there. I can possess ounces, lbs or garbage bags of food and it's still LEGAL. Have a store that sells it in mass quantities next door to me LEGALLY. Hell, I am indulging as we speak LEGALLY!!!! There is no comparison to food. Pose a better argument and then we will approach it again. Use cigarettes as an argument maybe? It is legal and still effectively kills you, or wait...do you smoke? Is that something you can't argue about? Whether you want to admit it, Big Brother owns you, cigarettes will eventually kills you and you can do nothing about it, can you, you are addicted!!! THEY OWN YOU!!!!

and by your condescending remarks, you assume that I don't do all the things that you do, such as, running, eat right, because vegan is just a way of gaining absolute power over something you have no control over,(by cutting all animal fats from a body that has been dependent upon them from both heredity and diet, the body then produces an almost identical fat to aid is digestion, so as not to thrown the digestive system into a sort of shock) so vegan all you want, cant get rid of it all, I too am a father and am in the gym each morning by 5 a.m. and have been for years and don't care that I am any healithier than anyone else, it's not a competition. I want to be the healthiest ME that I can be, could care less about others honestly. This entire rant of yours, from a behavioral aspect, screams low self esteem, its merely tit for tat, each time i up the ante, you go for more of a "better than you" conversation. Is it that I am in law enforcement that bothers you, it is a job, please get over that. Gotta show the MAN? Comments such as "Fife" and "monkey" only show a desperation to win. As for the "smoking legally" in California...please check out the laws there please. Medically grown and distributed marijuana is not as common as you think. Just because a news show does a show on it, doesnt make it widespread. People still get arrested there everyday for possession. Better start working on your best glaucoma symptoms, alzheimers should be easy enough to fake, Schizophrenia, bipolar disorder, or depression, you may have a lock on those and maybe breast cancer? Have AIDS/HIV? ALS or Opiom dependence, maybe MS? Because thats what it takes to get the card there, try working on that before you get there, but on second thought, doesn't matter really, If thats the only goal you have for going to California, the lack of a job there will send you right back here to me to police. Next argument?

ahhhh did i hit a nerve? lol Again, arrogance,disquised by the "better than you" attitude" with the comment about the degree. We all have them these days, Masters degree here, doesnt really matter what it's in, not worth as much as it used to be. I have friends that are computer engineers as you call them. They are a dime a dozen in California. Never thought you were a dummy, I actually enjoy this debate. I never assumed that "potheads" are not in shape. I know all to well that most are in shape, because I have to chase about 3 a week when they bolt from a car. As for me being involved in something that is not my business? YOU POSTED IT ON TOPIX....it is everybodys business. This is public and part of my job is to watch all "public" forums. So, in essence, you made it my business when you posted. I too have lived in California, loved it, you will have a blast. You are right about one thing, it is nothing like on TV. It is nasty beyond belief compared to TV. Once again, the "fife" thing? How many times do you think that I have heard that? You, by your posts, are seeking to be original, please be original in that aspect also. Different name? You show your age with names life "fife" and "NumbSkull"!! Living under my thumb? I am in awe of just how much information the departments in California share with us that they collect from citizens. You will always be under someones thumb and are getting ready to move to a place with a bigger thumb!!! Next argument?

Im sorry for the name calling that's not very mature . Never was i intending to brag or boast about anything . I have a good life compared to most of my age group at this point in my life so i don't need to brag about anything . My future is going upward for the first time in my life because i am not in a dead end factory job anymore , which is more than most people my own age that i grew up with in this area can say . I'm a lucky guy to have made it this far in life not to have been killed , in prison or some kind of drug addict i know that . For the first time public i could see a little more reasoning and understanding in your last post .

Please, Please tell me that you do not believe that crap about "if you ask a cop if he is a cop, he has to tell you"!!! Show me within NC general statutes where it says that!! Show me a court case that has affirmed a citizens "right to know"? These forums are an unbelievable tool that, up until recently, has been over looked. You name alone makes it fun to play with you, to know that my very existence here makes you mad, makes my day. By the way, look up the word mandate, it means nothing to the inference in which you were using. Next argument.....this is fun!!!!

Doesn't make me mad, not in the least. I know for a fact that it isn't part of your job to "watch" these forums. That's ludicrous, and so are your troll tactics. Which don't work on me. Kinda like all these runners you "catch", hogwash. I come here daily to poke at you or see what garbage you've dreamed up. It is fun!!!! Are you insinuating I buy my trees on the street from someone I don't know & ask that age old stupid question? ROFL, you truly are a funny individual. Supicions confirmed, You are a troll. See you tomorrow Pub, going home to put one in the clouds.

For a fact huh, you know that for a fact huh, that I am not someone that as a part of my job, not an official but very beneficial part, gets to waste taxpayer money to surf these as I sit at my desk, laughing? Once again, to exalt yourself, you must diminish those to whom you speak, classic!!! Still can't get over the name...you are the kind that makes my life worthwhile. The fact that you hate that which you can never, ever control!!!! I love it!!!

I smoke Weed Everyday, I have a Bad Back and I am on disability. I take no other drugs for pain management , I can not work as a school teacher any longer due to the fact that they randomly test for drugs... :-( So since the man is keeping me down and in fact keeping me from working at my chosen profession as a first grade teacher I now work for the post office , they bring me my check every month.. Weed was my cure and I am so happy to be off of the Perk's and Vic's ... My Liver is happier now as well.. Rite Aid Misses me ..

One of many reasons Weed should be legal at least medically . I trust no doctors or especially these ' Drug Companies ", Both of them profit off of each other profiting off the common public . Every-time a doctor writes a script for " the real drugs in America" they get a kickback from the drug companies . Doctors used to be there to help you now most would just rather give you a prescription and say to hell with it . I keep my family out of the doctors office as much as possible .

It's not a waste , If I come home from work and have had a bad day , instead of popping one of the many pills that my girl friends get from their Gynecologist ( and yes that is who writes all of the girls the scripts for drugs , and the script says you need to take them everyday even if your not having a bad day ) I just smoke weed, I smoke to chill after a bad day and I smoke when I want have fun , but I don't smoke every day . I spent less than $200 on pot last year. So that is less then they most of my friends spend on prescription feel good drugs .. Smoke it it if you got it !! Legalize it and I will plant it beside my Tomato's ..
